, they boh live, not just in the land of political reality, but in the land where barack obama wins. he won the district in virginia where the congressman comes from. and they won the state of ohio. so they know that the american politics are diverse, ideologically, policy wise, generational. so they know, to be successful politicians have to operate within those confines, the people, ted cruz and others are self-selecting, self-seg gra gaiting and coming up with this success that only relies on people who think like they do. >> howard, i'm not going to quit on this point. i like immigrants, especially people who come here legally and play by the rules. he did that. his father's from cuba. he just got here from canada. and yet he gets to dictate to everybody on the north, everybody's a minority. the blacks who were here for 400 years, at least a lot of them. are they americans? how do you get to dictate this stuff to america to your convenience. it's awesome. it's an awesome arrogance to talk like this, we americans. >> you don't get to dictate it, chris. and i think it's up to people withi

obama won. one year later after a gop autopsy and a vow to rebrand, they haven't learned anything. any moment dozens of senate republicans are expected to vote against a gay rights law that would ban discrimination against gay and lesbian employees in the workplace. that's 39 republicans who didn't get the memo. why? because they haven't learned anything. what about women's rights? republican senator lindsey graham is now launching a new fight against a woman's right to choose. calling for a 20-week abortion ban. >> i've been a pro-life member of congress since day one. i'm proud to lead this charge. >> todd akin was once proud to lead this charge. how'd that work out? again, they haven't learned anything. and this extreme ideology is particularly bad. look at virginia. the republican candidate for governor ken cuccinelli is as far right as they come. he thinks same-sex relationships are immoral, wants to ban abortions with no exception, and once said it's possible the president was born in kenya. and he's plunging in the polls. 12 points behind. so why is that? president obama was in
sdepd to the plate and knocked it out of the park. president obama proved that he can hit the curveball. because that's all the mainstream media has been throwing at the american people as of late. one curveball after another. so the president, at the top of his game, like the world series, steps out and lays it right on the line and sets the record straight. we start with breaking news tonight. president obama just wrapped up a big speech in boston, massachusetts, speaking in the big city. the beantown. you know, it's the same place governor mitt romney signed romneycare into law, back in april of 2006. president obama's speech obviously today was designed to draw the parallels between the success of the health care law in massachusetts, known as romney care, and now the actually law, known as obama care. the affordable care act. president obama came out and he just dispelled a bunch of lies through a bunch of water on the biggest myth about the affordable care act. he called out the so-called junk insurance policies. this is what we focused our program on last night. it's almost as if
in. tonight's lead, the president hits back on health care. today president obama went toe to toe against all those right wing critics who have been slamming the affordable care act. just a short time ago in boston, the president addressed to those critics head on and told them to explain themselves. >> it's no surprise that some of the same folks trying to scare people now are the same folks who've been trying to sink the affordable care act from the beginning. and i've said before, folks had actually good ideas, better ideas than what's happening in massachusetts or what we've proposed, for providing people with health insurance i'd be happy to listen. but that's not what's happening. and anyone defending the remnants of the old broken system as if it was working for people -- anybody who thinks we shouldn't finish the job of making the health care system work for everybody, especially when these folks offer no plan for the uninsured or underinsured or folks who lose their insurance each year. those folks should have to explain themselves. >> if republicans have a better plan, t
implemented what president obama wants to do and there's positive results. >> over the course of the next year or two, you're going to have a very big success for affordable health coverage. >> if you had had a moment with president obama, what would your advice be on how to make it right? >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. hope you had a great weekend. two senators from kentucky, mitch mcconnell, who heads up the republicans in the senate, and rand paul, who wants to be the president of the united states, these two senators have been the biggest obstructers and biggest bad-mouthers of obama care anywhere in the country. but look what's happening in their own backyard. this is the pulse center, and this is where mitch mcconnell and rand paul have never been. they have never been here in frankfurt, kentucky. it's an obscure office complex, it's known as building 12, and it's kind of hard to find. but this is where we were this morning. i wanted to go to kentucky to find out how this is working. president obama last week in a speech in boston, massachusetts, talked
's exactly why i came to washington. >> so what is your plan to row place or enhance obama care? >> my plan -- my plan is let's get rid of this failure and let's start over with something that will work. let's delay this. why should the american people be penalized for a website that's failed where they're told that they should go there and buy something they can't afford and into the new year, into 2014 millions, it's projected now that 16 million will have their health care premiums and their health care coverage cancelled. so now we've just increased the number of americans without health care coverage. that's what i want to see. i want to see us delay that penalty and i want to see us put forth something that will work like the american health care reform act that i support from the rnc. >> do you think that massachusetts and we should be utilizing the example of what's taken place in massachusetts that was instituted under then governor mitt romney as a better example for how we can do this on a national level? because nearly 100% of adults and children in massachusetts have health car

. >> my contention is that the obama administration is encouraging parasites to come out and, you know, take as much as they can with no remorse. >> now, we can debate economic policy. we can debate how you aid those low income americans. but the disdain, the almost demonizing and denigrating of people because of the economic status, that to me is inexcusable, e.j. >> i think so too. they're acting as if all these folks have mansions right next door to donald trump on public benefits. they act as if all these folks don't want to work. one of the insidious things in the house bill is that they say they have a work requirement. but that's not a real work requirement, because states can cut people even if they're unemployed, even if they're looking for work, even if they can't find jobs that they want to take. and the state is under no obligation to help them. that's not a work requirement. that's just punishing people because the unemployment rate is high. and so it's crazy to talk this way about our fellow citizens and i agree with you. i think it's wrong. >> congresswoman, but there is
a resolution through about that. what president obama has done inherited surveillance structure he said he was going to change but, in fact, has kept broadly intact. >> yeah. indeed in the "wall street journal" it says officials at the nsa has so many eavesdropping operations under way it wouldn't have been practical to brief him on all of them. these decisions are made at the nsa. the president doesn't sign off on this stuff. that protocol is now under review, the official added. you better bet that protocol under review. it does not seem like good security policy to have the president out of the loop on something like this, peter. >> that's right. the question is, is the president mad about this or not? how much is plausible denialability, or does he find it disturbing he doesn't know about it? does somebody lose a job? somebody called on the carpet. it has big effects, sweeping e-mails from abroad, metadata, to be reported as tapping into the phone calls of your peers on the international stage, that's a whole different level. >> frank, peter brings up a really important point. is the p

. >>> was the obama campaign considering replacing joe biden with hillary clinton on the 2012 ticket? it appears so. in the new book "double down" it's said obama's chief of staff at the time was actively pushing the idea. in the end the research showed it didn't move the polls enough to justify the move. >>> also in that book mitt romney seriously considered chris christie for vice president. the new jersey governor was apparently ruled out because of unanswered questions about his background and, quote, health concerns. >>> there's also new data on the number of people who signed up for obama care on day one. are these numbers a sign of trouble or what was expected? we'll talk about it and what it means for the white house as well as the uninsured and the fight against the rollout with the republican national committee chair, reince priebus, next. when you vote for flo, we'll have discounts. ice-cream discounts. multi-cookie discounts. pizza loyalty discounts!

[ applause ] >> that was at a north texas tea party event about two months before mitt romney lost the presidential election and of course it was long after president obama had produced his birth certificate showing that unlike either raphael cruz, sr., or junior, he was actually born in the united states. joining me now are msnbc political analyst steve schmidt, senior adviser on the mccain '08 campaign and joy reid, nbc contributor. this latest video about him wanting to send president obama as he puts it back to kenya was pulled out today. it's been around. they highlighted it. and then the senator put out a statement saying he doesn't -- his father doesn't speak for him. >> it's so precious when the guy whose son was born in canada does birther jokes. that's adorable. it highlights without the media officially there kind of the way conservatives are talking amongst themselves. and that really is the problem. the problem is even with the 47% video, this was mitt romney being asked by somebody in the audience how can we get
at an organizing for action health care summit looking to rally grass roots support for obama care. the white house remains under fire because of president obama's promise that if americans liked their health insurance plan, they could keep it. but according to the associated press, at least 3.5 million americans have already been issued cancellation notices from their health insurance provid s providers. that number is likely to go up as data from half the states still remains unavailable. and there is a report white house officials debated the health care pledge back in 2009 in the likelihood that every american would in fact be able to keep their coverage. yesterday former white house adviser david axelrod defendeded the president on "meet the press". >> why did not you or somebody else say to him, mr. president, don't say no matter what you're going to keep your health care plan? was that bad practice? >> hindsight is 20/20. >> that's why you're there. >> the vast majority of americans, that statement will hold true for. for this small group, it hasn't. but the calamitous thing is that the web

's miguel almaguer, thanks. >>> let's go to politics. new today, president obama sending this message to both parties in congress. work together to pass a budget. >> here's the bottom line. congress should pass a budget that cuts things we don't need and closes wasteful tax loopholes that don't help create jobs so that we can free up resources for the things that do create jobs and growth. building new roads, building new bridges and schools and airports. that creates jobs. >> meantime, republicans are doubling down today on the problems that be have plagued the obama care website with senator dan coats of indiana delivering the weekly gop response. >> too many americans still cannot even access the online exchanges and for the few that have, their experiencing sticker shock. the president told us that obama care is more than a website. i agree. it it is more than just a website and the problems run far deeper than a few technological glitches. >> well, the white house released a progress report late friday on the website fix saying it is improving with users now waiting an average of
boston, not for world series game six, but obama care. the person he put in charge for launching the program was grilled on capitol hill. it is where mitt romney signed his state's health care reform in 2006. mitt will not be there today. keep a number out for this number, 123, the total number of people who enrolled in the commonwealth's case in its first month. as we know, enrollment later spiked and that's one message the president will push as an indicator that obama karen rollment might be off to a slow start but will pick up. joining him on the stage, deval patrick and state workers. kathleen sebelius answered questions from frustrated lawmakers on the botched rollout. what's next for the site and millions of canceled subpar plans. >> let me say directly to those americans, you deserve better. i apologize, i'm accountable to you to fixing the problems. >> is he keeping his promise to them? >> congresswoman, they can get health insurance. they must be offered new plans. >> some people like to drive a ford not a ferrari and some like to drink out of a red solo cup. >> hold me
security. he was chief of the social security administration under presidents bush and obama until february and tells nbc news that officials were carving out exemptions allowing social security numbers and financial information to be shared with local governments, private contractors, employers, family members and department of homeland security. administration officials say sharing data is essential. >> that's michael he is coughmi isikoff reporting. >>> new numbers this morning show americans are split over the health care law. it is all in the new nbc news "wall street journal" poll. it reveals bad news for president obama. tracie potts is live in washington with all of the details. >> reporter: good morning. in the poll, the president's approval rating is at an all-time low. it's he at 42% compared to 51% now disapprove of how the president is doing his job. and take a look at how that has changed over time. going back to january, the beginning of his second term, he was at 52%. then we had the irs scandal and the benghazi hearing. it dropped a bit. by june, the nsa leaks came out. edw
in the cr we passed a law that president obama signed. quote, prior to making such credits and deductions available, the secretary shall certify that the exchanges verify such eligibility consistent with the requirements of the act. here's the question. are we really verifying at the front end whether a person is actually eligible for these subsidies or not? and here's why this matters. if they're not eligible for the subsidy and then once we reconcile these records, they get taxed the money back off of their refund. and so this is what i mean when i say rude awakenings. people are signing up for insurance. they're getting tax credit subsidies funded by taxpayers. the irs is already telling us they're confused about how to do this. you're not telling us whether or not you're proactively determining whether, say, an under 26-year-old is actually eligible for the subsidies you're trying to sell them and the problem is once we learn whether or not they were eligible and if they weren't, people in good faith will be signing up for subsidies that they're not eligible for. >> i think you're ask

in the latest polling from nbc news, where president obama's approval rating has fallen to an all-time low of 42%. that is a five-point drop from just earlier this month. these numbers, as bad as they are, don't necessarily exist in a vacuum. there's a lot more complexity to the current political environment, which in many ways is the story of american politics in the tea party era. >> let's talk about the president. >> between syria, between the shutdown, between obama care, how are his approval numbers stacking up? >> record lows. >> the president's approval rating dropped five points. >> at an all-time low. >> is this more than just the second-term curse? >> if he goes below where he is right now, he's going to be in george bush territory and that's hard to come back from. >> the latest nbc news poll does, indeed, find that the president's approval rating is at a five-year low, and it is true that his popularity rating is hovering where george bush's was five years into his presidency. but there's an important distinction about where their presidency and where their parties are at. in novembe

's senator paul giving a response to president obama. >> under president obama, the ranks of america's poor have swelled to almost one in six people. we are now at an all-time high in long-term unemployment. millions of americans are struggling and out of work. >> when you read that, one in six, the numbers appear. exactly the same way. if you were a criminologist you would say this guy is taking stuff from that guy. this isn't just a coincidence factor here because it would be one in a zillion here for the words to follow the way they have. >> it's clear there's a lot of sloppiness here. my teenage daughters know when you're writing a paper, you don't just lift things off of wikipedia which may not even be true. whoever is doing this cutting and pasting off of ap which is non-stylistic, straightforward. but at least my kids know you make a change of a word or two here or there so your teachers don't have a case against you. whoever he's hiring to do speeches -- >> that's why you have a thesaurus. a thesaurus sitting next to your desk. >> chris, you're old school. you have it on your comput

. we need to send barack obama back to chicago. send him back to kenya. [ applause ] >> send him back to kenya? this wasn't a one-time joke. senator cruz's father has said similar things plenty of times. often at tea party events. >> when obama campaigned in 2008, it was very clear he was a socialist. one of the things in obama care is that for the elderly, every five years you must have end of life counseling. translation, suicide counseling. not much different than that friend that left behind in cuba. governing just like a dictator like fidel castro. >> this is vile stuff. so why should anyone care what a senator's father says or thinks? because rafael cruz himself is a rising star in the gop. a tea party hero who is a prime example of how extreme and hateful towards president obama the right wing has become. he does joint interviews with his son. they speak at the same anti-obama care events. they get the same adoring treatment from right wing talkers. and the senior mr. cruz even gets shoutouts from other far right senators. >> by the way, i see my friend rafael cruz here this mo
